When Terentia’s father dies he leaves her with a dagger and the words ”It will lead you to…”. Alone in Rome, Terentia goes out to find the secret behind her father’s dagger. But she is not the only one, and soon she is fighting for the dagger, its secret and her own future.
This book is written with two things in mind; being a great study companion to the Latin student, teacher and autodidact, and being a great, enjoyable page-turning book. The number of different words is kept limited so that you don’t have to look up every second word to make sense of the story. You encounter the same words many tiimes throughout the book, so that you will remember them more easily. The style is typical for the way the ancient authors wrote, but the story is modern and compelling. This makes the book perfect for autodidacts, students and their teachers.
